ClientShow Selects Aria to Monetize Creative Agency Collaboration

Cloud-Based Creative Collaboration Platform Chooses SaaS Billing Leader

MEDIA, PA--(Marketwire - February 18, 2010) -  Aria Systems, Inc. (http://www.AriaSystems.com), the leading provider of on demand billing and subscription management solutions, today announced that ClientShow (http://www.clientshow.com) has selected the Aria Billing and Subscription Management Platform. ClientShow is a real-time data application developed for creative agencies and their clients to better interact with each other when collaborating on design, marketing, and advertising projects. ClientShow chose Aria to monetize a large market opportunity that spans individual freelance designers up to global advertising, marketing and design firms.

ClientShow allows creative and marketing professionals to show, pitch and sell their work to their clients more effectively. ClientShow also solves the social problems of how individuals, small groups and larger agencies interact with clients and teams within projects. Through intuitive tools developed for the specific contextual needs of creative and marketing professionals and as an on-demand SaaS solution, ClientShow delivers immediate value without requiring large investments of time or money. ClientShow was recently recognized as a TechCrunch50 Finalist for innovation and entrepreneurship.

First Research estimates Graphic Design market in the U.S. alone at $8 billion comprised of more than 16,000 firms. ClientShow needed to be able to manage customers using free services as well as paid subscription services and usage-based services. Automated, real-time activation of services was also critical so that creative professionals could immediately experience the power of the ClientShow platform without waiting on manual activation processes. The Aria Billing Platform will integrate with PayProdigy and Chase Paymentech so that ClientShow can provide flexibility and choice to clients while minimizing processing fees. After reviewing multiple on-demand billing and subscription management platforms, ClientShow selected Aria because Aria provides the most flexibility, can deliver immediate subscriber activation, and has proven its ability to support international requirements including multiple currencies and payment processors. ClientShow expects to save upwards of $750,000 by using SaaS billing from Aria instead of developing their own internal system.

"ClientShow intends to serve an ever-growing global market, and we needed a billing and subscription management platform that could support that," said Dann Ledwick, CEO at ClientShow. "Aria gives us a global monetization platform with product pricing flexibility and immediate activation for our customers."

"Customers like ClientShow know when they choose Aria Systems that they're choosing the clear leader in the space," said Ed Sullivan, CEO at Aria Systems. "Our new customers are proving every day that nobody can match us in global deployability, flexibility of pricing models, or automation of the entire subscription management process, and that's why we're dominating this market."
